NexPET can run up to a 48-cavity mould and recycled PET pellets plus is equipped with a number of features such as the 25% faster mould changeovers to support a multiple preform design environment. It also offers a choice of different screw diameters to maximise production output flexibility and features the Reflex PET clamp to distribute the right amount of force and maximising mould life.

The rotating end-of-arm tool with up to three cooling positions to ensure preforms are ejected at ideal temperatures and with intuitive, easy-to-use controls that fast set-up, maximised uptime, optimal energy management and central control of auxiliaries is possible.

Furthermore, the adaptive system pressure automatically adjusts oil pressure to suit specific applications while conserving energy.

“Consumers are increasingly demanding more personalised products catered to their unique lifestyles and tastes. The global climate created by Covid-19 has amplified this trend, forcing many producers to rapidly adapt operations to scale up new applications like hand sanitiser, disinfectant and other health, personal care or cleaning related products,” said Robert Domodossola, Husky’s President of Rigid Packaging.

Husky’s system supports a wider variety of applications, more SKUs, shorter production runs and more frequent design changeovers. The system’s flexible design is ideally suited to meet continuously changing production requirements, while maintaining the Six- Sigma part quality.
